I’m Angela, your CHRONIC STRESS COACH.
I help professional women be free of burnout + chronic stress, even with a demanding career.
I do this work because I stopped allowing work, pressure, and other people rule my life, and I can help you do the same.
I have always been an achiever and strived to do-do-do to perform well, keep everything in working order, and calm the anxiety that needed to please other people.
But over time, this took a toll.
After receiving 4 promotions in 5 years, chronic stress and anxiety drove me to exhaustion.
I experienced chest pain every day, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, and a host of other unexplainable symptoms. I had to take two medical leaves of absence from work and a voluntary demotion <insert ego deflation>.
I was always so busy working, I was not able to be present with my husband and neglected my one true love.
I was a mess, even though on the outside, everything looked absolutely fine.
I knew I needed to change.
I didn’t want to live an overextended and disconnected life.
I set out to free my heart, my mind, and my body from 3 decades of relentless self-pressure, over-doing, controlling, protecting, avoiding, and perfecting. I wanted to be FREE so bad!
But I didn’t leave my job or go to a tropical island. Instead, I healed myself in the same corporate work environment that triggered my dysfunction.
Yep, I stayed 5 five more years in my corporate biotech career until I was solid in my transformation.
When traditional medicine and talk therapy failed, I broke all the rules and leveraged my medical background and truth-seeking mind to heal myself. I took 100% responsibility.
I stopped looking outside and looked within.
And today, I am free.
I no longer labor over what ‘I should’ be doing. I say no without feeling guilty or afraid something bad will happen.
I take care of myself. I don’t contribute to chaos. I don’t worry about what may happen in the future and how I’ll need to fix it.
I say what I need to say without apology; and I experience love + meaningful connection with nature, people, and animals.
And most importantly, I have a deep sense of ‘I’m OK’ no matter what happens.
If I can change from a Type A workaholic perfectionist to a woman with presence and peace, you can too, even if you have a demanding career.
Professional Cred? I’ve got it.
I work with professional women whose intelligence is matched with a heart and mind that long to feel free and unburdened.
My approach is holistic, science-based, with a dash of humor and eastern philosophy.
I blend my life experience, coaching skills, and clinical expertise to deliver solutions for the root cause of your problems.
My superpower is identifying the root cause of your discontent and teaching you how to be at peace with yourself, your work, and your relationships.

To be fully alive with less stress in my body is a dream come true.Jennifer F
Instead of relying on the opinions of others to direct my decision making, I have learned to trust myself.
Having permission to take care of myself, and identifying the best way to do that, was eye-opening.
This practice ended the cycle of sacrificing my needs that had led to constant burnout.Tracy C
